UofL Party Hosts that Caused COVID-19 Outbreak Kicked Off Soccer Team

Not taking coronavirus seriously enough can get you sidelined from athletic events. The new Major League Baseball rule is now in effect at the University of Louisville.

A day after the school revealed 29 student-athletes tested positive for COVID-19 after attending an off-campus party, UofL announced that the three men’s soccer players who hosted the party have been kicked off the team. This was not the players’ first offense. Men’s soccer coach John Michael Hayden suspended three other players who were involved in the incident.

“I fully support John Michael’s decision,” said UofL Director of Athletics Vince Tyra. “It is clear that these student-athletes did not meet the code of conduct of the university or their team. Ignoring the safety protocols issued by federal, state and local officials, as well as the athletic department, is unacceptable and dangerous. Their history of actions are not in alignment with the values of this university and athletics department.”

The swift action has set precedent at UofL. There’s no telling if other schools will follow their lead.

    Ouch! Perhaps: Blessing in disguise. Look upon this as an opportunity gained to attend and graduate from an outstanding university as opposed to uavel…a school ‘higher’ learning.

    Louisville suspends 3 scapegoats that weren’t good enough be offered money, drugs, or hookers.

      No, but they were the ring leaders. Actions have consequences.

      The other morons that showed up and did not take precautions are just as guilty, agree with T-Town here. Actions should also taken be for those that went.
